Albert Einstein was a pretty smart dude. He enjoyed “thought experiments”, where he would think about a problem, come up with a hypothetical solution and then try to imagine the consequences, good and bad, of what might happen.
Here is an interesting Eagles thought experiment. Think about the 2016 Eagles. Imagine you could swap out Julio Jones for Nelson Agholor. Or you could swap out Richard Sherman for Leodis McKelvin. Okay, now throw a glass of water in your face and come back to reality.
The question is which player would make the 2016 Eagles better. The team went 7-9 as is. With which player would they have a better record?
I’ll post my thoughts later. For now, I’d like to know your take on Big Al’s Eagles question.
